In post-apocalyptic America, Selah Chavez is crouched in long grass on a shore littered with the rusted metal remnants of a once-great city. It is the day before her eighteenth Born Remembrance, and she is hunting, though many people refuse to eat animal flesh, tainted by radiation during the Time of Sorrows. What Selah's really after are Landers, mysterious people from a land across the big water who survive the delirium-inducing passage in small boats that occasionally crash against the shoreline. She knows she should leave the capture to the men, but Landers bring a good price from the Company and are especially prized if they keep the markings they arrive with.

Everything falls to pieces when the Lander Selah catches is stolen by her brothers--and Selah wakes up the next morning to find the Lander's distinctive mark has suddenly appeared on her own flesh. Once the hunter, Selah is now one of the hunted, and she knows only one person who can help her--Bohdi Locke, the Lander her brothers hope to sell.


THUNDER Available October 7th.

WILD CARD FRIDAY 22 AUG 2014

Welcome to Wild Card Friday. On the fourth  (and fifth) Friday of every month, I've invited my writer friends to share something fun and different about themselves or their work, or something fun for you to do. This week Sue Mason has a picture for us to caption. So get ready to give it your best shot!


Can you tell what’s on the tabby’s mind by his expression?

Come on, let's have some fun. Share your caption in a comment below.

Now, let's take a look at Sue's newest book.

Lily Draper comes to Rainbow Falls in search of her biological sister, the only blood relative she has left. Emotionally scarred by her preacher father, Lily avoids religion at all cost. Her new landlord, an aspiring minister, soon has her questioning her views. Can she learn to trust Nick's heart or will her sordid past destroy their love?

Nick Logan hopes to take over for the retiring minister who has groomed Nick for the job. But Reverend Ted seems to feel the position requires Nick to marry an upstanding woman, namely Ted’s niece. When Nick finds himself falling in love with Lily Draper, the woman least likely to become a minister's wife, his problems escalate. And when Reverend Ted gives him an ultimatum, Nick faces an impossible choice.

Can he accept God’s will and still find a place for Lily in his life?  





Susan has recently been blessed with contracts from White Rose Publishing, Harlequin Love Inspired and Bethany House. Betrayed Hearts is Susan’s debut contemporary romance, which releases on August 8, 2014. Book 2 - Wayward Hearts releases in December 2014.
Susan lives in a suburb near Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where she works part-time as a church secretary. She is a wife and the mother of two amazing kids, and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and Romance Writers of America (RWA). In addition to writing, she likes to scrapbook and to research her family history on-line. You can connect with her on Facebook or on her website http://www.susanannemason.com.

THIRD FRIDAY WRITING NEWS 15 August

It's my week to share, yea!!  Every third Friday I'll catch you up on what's new with my writing or something fun I'm doing. There's lots to share this month!!


THE WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW: SAMANTHA

We don't have a release date, I haven't even started edits yet, but we have a cover and I think it's beautiful!!

I'm crossing my fingers that we'll see her released sometime in the spring of 2015.


THE WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW: KATE

I put "THE END" on Kate's rough draft last week. I'm editing and polishing the story while I wait for Samantha's edits.
***Please note, this is NOT the cover*** I clipped a picture of Kate from the cover of Pam's story so we could see what she looks like.

What's Kate's story about?

A two time widow falls hard for her new business partner, both unaware that he killed her first husband.
 

 Last but not least, the July issue of my news letter is out. In this issue I have the great fun of interviewing author/lawyer/pastor Randy Singer.


 He's gonna give an autographed copy of his latest book away and the are some other nice contests and freebies for new subscribers. If you haven't subscribed, I'd love to have you.

You can do that HERE

If you like to take a look at the July issue, you can see it HERE
                                                                                               


So, let's talk about VALLEY VIEW. Do you have a question about any of the stories, characters, or series present or future?  Now's the time to ask.
